The Italian SuperLega silver medalists Cucine Lube Civitanova made a huge success by advancing to the final of the 2018 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League knowing the fact last time they did it was 16 years ago.


 

„It was obvious we wanted to get to the Final, in which Lube haven’t been for 16 years. During the race, we removed the scraps of the defeat last Sunday (Game 5 of SuperLega playoff finals). We are proud to be in the final but we want to do everything to return home with the trophy. Tomorrow, we will put our 110% on the floor to win. This team deserves it after a season like this in which we got to the very end in all the competitions. We will carefully prepare every little detail for the final. Today, in the important moments, we have been cold and lucid. We will have to be like that tomorrow as well,“ Lube coach, Giampaolo Medei, said after the semifinal against Zaksa Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
